I've got Eldritch Witchery aleady. If I want to run Spellcraft & Swordplay, is The Witch made to be compatible with it?
Or does it contain material for 1974-compatible games using the optional d20 mechanic?

EW is for S&S but will work with white box/ 0e games. The Witch is designed for B/X and BECMI games. Hope that helps!

Hi Tim,
I was wondering what relation this product has to "Eldritch Witchery?" I already own "The Witch" (and quite like it!); is there much new information in "Eldritch...", or is it a reformatting of "The Witch" for a different game?

They share about 75% of the same material.
EW has a few different traditions than the Witch has. Also the biggest addition is the Warlock class in EW.

EW is an S&S game, but it is compatible with most "0e" type retro clones.
Hope that helps!
